In St. Andrew’s Square, a lion 

We went there for a pre-fringe music event in something called the Spiegeltent, and discovered this sculpture, by Ronald Rae, in the park. Rae did the Fallen Christ sculpture at the Iona Community property, and has done numerous other large animal sculptures scattered around Scotland. 

We met him on Iona a few years ago through Margaret Wright; his sculpture on Iona is dedicated to the memory of her husband Jim, a member of the Iona Community. She lived in Edinburgh and  came to Iona for a few weeks every summer, staying at St. Columba. While  staying there this time we learned that she died this past winter. The following links tell more:
